Lodging: Camper Cabins

camper cabin in at Lake Bemidji State Park

A Minnesota State Park hidden treasure!

Camper cabins are rustic, one-room wooden cabins that provide basic shelter for visitors who want a "camping out" experience but prefer not to deal with a tent.

Each 12 by 16 foot cabin contains a table, benches, and wooden bunkbeds with mattresses. Most cabins have a screened porch and electricity, and many are wheelchair accessible. Sorry, no pets allowed.
